Meet Brenda

Brenda Goodell

HHP, SpBAP, CIMI. A Holistic Health Practitioner with over 32 years experience, Brenda is dedicated to helping pregnant people and their families. Her background reflects a personal interest in subtle and energetic healing modalities including Bach flower Essences, Reiki and Polarity. A certified Infant Massage Communication instructor by A Foundation for Healthy Family Living in Sonoma, she offers one-on-one classes to parents and caregivers of babies and the growing child. She is also a birth doula.

In 2018 she became a Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner and earned the distinction of SpBAP. Aware Practitioners have been trained in a bodywork protocol intended to allow:

  • Comfort in pregnancy.
  • Spontaneous change to a more optimal fetal position, where space is available in the womb.
  • Progress and less pain in labor.
